Rated 2 out of 5 by frustrated from Regal...not so My Regal is about 4 years old and I too am frustrated with the cast iron grills. Did all the recommended cleaning and storage and still rusted out grills. Frustrated as I don't want to buy a new one but might be forced to if the replacement is too expensive.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jakob from Worst cast iron I’ve ever experienced I bought my Baron 440 back in 2018 and during last summer I started seeing the grated shedding flakes. Tried to mend it but saw no improvement and at this stage they’re completely ruined. I’m a regular user of cast iron pans so I know how to take care of them but there’s no way to make these grates last. I’ve filed a warranty claim with my local supplier and hope to get that through but I will NEVER spend one cent on these grates.It truly a shame to have a grill that’s as good as my Baron is but equipped with absolutely garbage grates.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Wat1 from no good grates Cast Iron grates require too much work to maintain. Less than 4 years old and we need to purchase four more grates at a cost over $100 or about 10% the cost of the same bbq. Seasoning is not something you should need to do regularly. It is time a different product that requires less maintenance is used. Stainless steel grates are very costly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BGard from I love my Regal 490 but... I have owned several Broil King BBQ's now and love the way they perform and impressed on the support I have received when any problems occurred. I use my Regal all year long and do agree that the grills rust/break down even when seasoning. I have lived with moving the grills around to use the best ones the last few year but now looking at replacing the four 6" grill parts. At over $100 plus tax and shipping this hurts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Danibal from Terrible Grill Grates I have the Broil King Model 9225-64. After One season of grilling, the coated grill grates are starting to rust and pit. Unacceptable for what i paid for this grill. Tried cleaning to no avail, porcelain starts comming off with mild nylon brushing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by dmdm from Grids rusted out in 18 months We bought a new Broil King Regal grill 18 months ago and even though we've seasoned the grill and kept the BBQ protected from the elements year round, the grills start rusting out this spring and are now flaking badly and are unusable. The replacement parts are quite expensive and it makes no sense to replace with another cast iron set. I'd appreciate some advice on a better alternative.It's really unfortunate as the BBQ itself has been great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BradH from Rust and more rust I really do love my Regal BBQ that I purchased 5 years ago. However, the cast iron grids are rusted out and flaking in a bad way to the point that i wont use it until i can replace them. At the price of these grills, I would rather put stainless steel in them. But was surprised with the really high price tag. I am also disappointed that Broil King doesn't sell the replacement parts at a discounted price to pre-existing owners.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dutch from Rusted out I purchased my grill 2 years ago so I just finished my second summer with it and the grates are rusting out as well as the metal shields underneath. This BBQ is on a covered porch and is cleaned on a regular basis and seasoned. The replacement parts are ridiculous in terms of cost. I've owned a few good BBQ's but I'm not sold on these

Rated 2 out of 5 by John C from Rusted - Rotting Grilles Purchased the Baron S490 in June 2014 and I now need to replace the 4 grilles. When I brush the grilles pieces of metal flake off and have also flaked off during cooking. I spent the money on a quality product and now i have to replace the grilles. Hoping there is a better route than cast iron. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks

Rated 1 out of 5 by IgorS from Falling apart after 3 years. These cast iron grids don't seem to last. I started noticing peeling of the coating last year (after 2 years), even after seasoning the grids couple times a year. Now it's so bad that I have to throw it out. The replacements cost an arm and leg. I would think Broil King would make cooking grids that would last a bit longer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Annette from Terrible and hazardous porcelain grills!! Extremely disappointed with the grills. I maintained the grills as required and after two years they started rusting and began chipping. It's unsafe to grill anything on the porcelain grills as the porcelain will get in your food. Broil King needs to replace all their BBQ's with stainless steel grills immediately.

Rated 2 out of 5 by marlo from Grids not holding up. We received this for Christmas in 2016, wasn't delivered til Jan 2017. Probably wasn't even used until May. We don't grill out that much, but the racks are all peeling off and get into food, not safe. It has always been stored in the garage over the winter, so not used for most of the year. Very disappointed!

Rated 1 out of 5 by DCToledo from Grids don't last. I bought the Regal 420 a little over 6 years ago and need to buy my 4th set of replacement grids. Lucky if they last more than a season and a half. Same story every time. The coating starts to flake then it's rust city. Love the grill itself but the replacement grids are expensive and don't last.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JoeNJ from Great grill; Cast Iron Burners need work Let me start by saying that the grill itself is great. We're going into the fourth season with it, and it's been very durable overall, gets really hot, and seems like it will last for a really, really long time. Except for the Cast Iron Cooking Grids. Despite my best efforts to season the grids regularly, they are starting to rust and peel and need to be replaced. As one reviewer mentioned, it's not feasible to have to turn over the grids every time you use the barbecue to re-season the underside. And the underside has now rusted and cracked, and I cannot use the grids. I might be ok with this issue if the grids themselves were a little cheaper to replace, but they are expensive for a set of four. And the Stainless Steel ones, that would hopefully solve this problem altogether, would be even double that price. I think mine lasted longer than most of the other reviewers. I did try to stay on top of regularly seasoning them, so maybe that's why, but even that did not keep them usable for long.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Chris Q from Great grill but horrible rust These grill plates rust terribly. Huge flakes come off into the food. I regularly clean and season them. Would love to hear a solution but unfortunately I would not recommend this due to the rust issues. It’s a shame because everything else about the grill is great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mattp from Rusted grates I bought this grill 3 years ago and is really good but the cast iron grills have rusted and steered to flake making them unusable. I am currently looking to replace them but will coast the same as a new bbq. I’m hoping someone from broil king will contact me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JimHal from Slowly eating my grill First off I have an Imperial 590 and it has been fantastic but the cast iron grills are awful.Before cooking I need to remove large chunks that are flaking off and even after that I get bits stuck to my food. Really disjointed in the cast iron.

Rated 1 out of 5 by WeTheNorth from Terrible Started to rush and break apart in the first season. We've been trying to take care of it but it's at a point where there's metal in the meat from the slivers of metal breaking off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by alp9p4 from Rusted Quickly Even though I oiled them extensively, these rusted out within a couple years. Pretty disappointing as I stood behind these grills and sold them at my Ace Hardware store.
